J. Authors of Toronto spent a

from here to Vancouver and later
to Portland. He appears well
pleased with Penticton and vicinity.

$7,000, and that Mr. Glass intends coming here to reside.
Nine acres of the land have been

Henry Main left a couple of
bottles of horse medicine, done
up in Port Wine wrappers, in his
hallway on Wednesday night for
the stage to take out on the following morning. Next morning
the medicine had disappeared.
The mixture was composed of
castor oil and turpentine. Mr.
Main hopes it may be enjoyed.
The Okanagan Nursery Co.
have finished their cold storage
building on kain St. The walls
of the building are eighteen in.
thick, fifteen in. packed with
sawdust, and three inches of an
air space. The place is well provided with ventilation so that it
may be kept at a normal temperature and will be used for storing the company's roots, bulbs
and grafts.
M. C. Kendall recently lost
a valuable riding and driving
horse. The animal, while
tethered to a rail, attempted to
jump a fence, when the rail
caught and threw the horse backward, breaking its hip. Later
while attempting to rise, it fell
on a snag which pierced its side,
and it was decided that the best
thing to do was to shoot it as
there was no chance of its recovery.
Steps are being taken to secure
one of the provincial government
circulating libraries for Penticton. The effort should prove
successful as there is no public
library of any kind in town.
This will be a step towards the
establishment of a reading room
and library. A reading room
would fill a great want at present
as the class who have no homes
and, consequently, no place in
which to enjoy a quiet read, is
considerable.
The Kelowna Tobacco Leaf
Co., in order to introduce tobacco
growing in Penticton, make a
very liberal offer. They wish to
interest ten growers, and will
supply to each, free of charge,
enough plants to plant an acre.
In the fall they will buy the tobacco at the same rate as they
pay the Kelowna growers, which
will be about 16 cts. per lb. Any
persons requiring further particulars may apply direct to the
company at Kelowna.
A light snow fell for the first
time this season on Wednesday,
the 27th., just enough to give
the ground a greyish aspect, but
all signs of it were gone by next
morning. We are now having
occasional light frosts at night.
However, it is now less than a
month to Christmas, and the fall
has been delightful, so an occasional reminder that we are not
living quite within the tropics
must be looked for.
A general Christmas Tree will
be held in Steward's Hall from 7
to 10 p. m. on Christmas Eve.
Presents will be provided for all
the children in the district, and
parents, whose children are not
attending the public school, are
requested to send the names and
ages of their children to the
Christmas Tree Committee at the
post-office, so that appropriate
presents may be purchased.
Small donations will also be
thankfully received by the committee.
Geo. E. Winkler and A. E.
Thomas have, after considerable
delay, secured the licenses for
their coal lands on Power Creek
above Galletly's Landing. Over
twelve hundred dollars have been
collected from the shareholders
of the new company that has
been organized to prospect the
claims, and a diamond drill has
been ordered from Hedley. There
will be no more delay than is absolutely necessary in getting the
drill into operation, and ascertaining what the earth contains at
that point.
The Affirmative Wins.
Successful Bazaar.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church held a most successful
bazaar on the afternoon of Wednesday. A large quantity of candies, bread, cakes, garments and
other articles had been prepared,
and Steward's Hall was thronged
with eager buyers until after 8
o'clock when not a single article
was left. Lunch was served during the evening to all who
wished to partake, and, taken
all round, everybody seemed
pleased, even though a number
of the bachelors had to content
themselves with purchases of
ladies' aprons and babies' clothing.
See King Kennedy, Dec. 9.
Last night's programme at the
Literary and Debating Society
took the form of a debate on:
"Resolved that selfishness governs every human action." Quite
a large crowd turned out to heai
the arguments advanced pro and
con, and much interest was manifested throughout. W. J. Clement and Jas. Edmonds took the
affirmative, while E. W. Mutch
and F. C. Harris championed the
negative. The judges were W.
A. McKenzie, J. W. Creighton,
and Geo. Winkler; who, aftei
careful consideration of the arguments advanced on both sides
gave their decision in favor ol
the affirmative.
After an opportunity had been
given to those in the audience tc
give expression to their views,
Mr. Hibbert gave a general criticism of both the strong and the
weak points of all the speakers,
and drew attention also to several unparliamentary features he
had noticed. The appointing of
a critic each evening is a new
feature of this season's work,
and bids fair to become productive of much good if the duties
are thoughtfully and carefully
performed. The matter of procuring a circulating library from
the government was laid before
the meeting; but owing to the
lateness of the hour, no action
was taken.
The frequent and ill-timed interruptions on the part of some
of the audience, and the wanton
destruction of the cards with tht
words of the ' 'Maple Leaf Forever" on were features that can
not be commended; and it i?
hoped that those who take advantage of the priveleges of the
society will show their appreciation of these priveleges by protecting instead of destroying the
property of the sodiety.
Lost in the Bush.
A gentleman, resident in one
of our neighboring lake town?,
tiring of his humdrum surroundings, has been in the habit of
paying occasional visits to Penticton and spending an evening
with the boys. The climate
seemed good, and the company
congenial, while there was always a possibility, while indulging in a friendly game, of making
expenses, and probably a little
more to the good.
The gentleman's portly form
and congenial smile as he steps
from the lake steamer are.always
taken to portend something more
than the ordinary in the way ol
amusement for the following
evening. Lately he met with a
certain professor and both gentlemen entered into a compact to
do the district towns together.
The tour proved not only pleasant but profitable until Penticton was reached. Here, however, some mean person let the
boys into the secret, whereupon
they lost no time in holding an
interview with the professor,
with the result that things were
fixed up pretty much to their
liking.
At what hour the party retired
to rest that night we are not informed, but by that time our
friend had, in some mysterious
way, probably by the manipulations of stocks or something else,
dropped about seventeen hundred dollars. Late, when all
save one were in blissful dreamland, he suddenly and mysteriously took his departure. There
are vague rumors about being
lost in the bush, and an underground passage to the Steamer
Okanagan, but no definite information seems obtainable. However, no search party has been
sent out so we presume he has
been located.
NARAMATA
Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell entertained a large number of guesls
?n Friday evening. Games and
lancing made the evening a delightful one and was much enjoyed by all.
Quite an excitement occurred
luring the storm of Saturday, as
it was feared that one of our
young men had met with disaster while canoeing. A rescuing
oarty went in search and found
tim safely housed at the home
>f Mr. Fred Anderson, about five
niles north of Naramata, where
che rescuing party were royally
entertained, and later arrived
tome tired but happy that no
tragedy had occurred.
Mr. Thos. Scaife has completed

Palmer and Mr. Dan McKay.
A.n old-fashioned chivari was

repast. Congratulations and best
wishes for future happiness were
tendered by the many friends.
Mr. A. E. Thomas has gone to
his coal mining interests near
Peachland.
Work on the Maud Moore is
about completed. She was
launched Saturday. She looks
handsome and trim.
Mr. Fife Moore of Spokane is

J. M. Robinson.
OKANAGAN FALLS
Dr. Cross and Mr. Deardoff,
Superintendent of Roads and
Bridges for the district, passed
through the Falls on Saturday
en route to Fairview. Dr. Cross
subsequently returned to the
Falls.
We hear that there will be
many visitors from the Falls and
district to the opening dance of
the Quadrille Club on November
29th. We hope it will prove as
successful as the last Penticton
dance.
Mr. S. M. Snow left for Kelowna on Friday.

Hedley on Tuesday, John McKin-
lon, the foreman of the Nickel
Plate Mine being struck on the
head by a falling rock which
crushed his skull, killing him instantly. Daceased was well
known at Fairview and Camp
VIcKinney where he previously
worked in the mines, and was universally respected. He was the

Fire  Protection.
Some weeks ago, at an Executive meeting of the Penticton
Hoard of Trade, the question of
fire protection for Penticton was
discussed at some length. A gravity system of water supply, or
the purchase of a fire engine being out of the question for an unincorporated town, it was agreed
that the best thing to do under
the circumstances was to form a
bucket brigade. A supply of
buckets, ladders, and ropes being
necessary, it was decided to send
a man around with a subscription
list. Jas. Edmonds was selected
to do the work, and he will probably call on everybody in the
near future. It is hoped that all
will respond heartily to the cause,
as the town is certainly in a bad
condition should a fire break out.
Really effective work can be done
with buckets, particularly in preventing the spread of a fire.
the province for the exclusive
use and benefit of the Indians,
with the express understanding
that such lands should correspond to the actual needs of the
Indians, and that the areas
should be reduced as the tribes
diminished.
"And whereas. In many cases
there has been a material diminution ol'the Indians on such reserve:-;
"And-jyhereas certain of these
. reserves are within the confines
of the larger cities of the province, to the detriment of the
community;
"And whereas these reserves
are being used by the Liberal
govei nment at Ottawa in the interests of political favorites and
not as originally intended:
"Be it therefore resolved, that
it is highly desirable that steps
be immediately taken towards
the re-adjustment of the areas
of such reserves so as to make
the reserved lands available for
settlement."
With a clear-cut policy to present to the voters at the next
Dominion election, the chances
are very favorable to the Conservative party returning seven
members to the House of Commons in place of the seven Liberals who now hold seats.

Shall We Bury the Dead?
The question of a cemetery
site has not yet been settled. The
English church have stated that,
in future, their grounds will be
reserved for their own dead.
This is only reasonable, and we
consider it about time that the
public were taking steps to secure a plot. Death is just as
certain as life, and it often comes
when least expected. We suggest that action be taken at once
to finally dispose of the question.
The next thing we know there
will be no available ground.
The Land Co. have offered a lot
on exceptionally good terms, but
they are not going to hold any
particular piece forever.
In the..settling of this question
people will have to suppress their
individual sentiments. The cemetery is certain to be beside
somebody's property. That cannot be avoided, but cemeteries
are often located in the hearts
of cities, and few people in rural
districts hesitate to give a corner
of their farms when required to
do so for the purpose of burying
the dead.
Important Resolutions.
At the provincial convention
of the conservative party held in
Vancouver on the 23rd inst. some
important resolutions were
passed. R. L. Borden and his
policy were heartily endorsed, as
well as the local government and
Promier McBride, in his fight for
better terms for the province.
The resolutions, which will appeal most strongly to the voters
of British Columbia, however,
were those dealing with Asiatic
exclusion and the Indian reserve
question. The former reads as
follows:
"The members of this convention believe that Canada should
ba preserved as a white man's
country, and approve of the
course pursued by the local government with respect to Asiatic
immigration, at the same time
condemning the attitude of the
Dominion Government, especially
that of our British Columbia
members at Ottawa, in this connection." This is certainly very
pronounced and makes the position of the party very clear upon
a subject that is agitating the
minds of all classes in this province.
The resolution relative to Indian reserves reads:
"Whereas under the terms of
the convention between the governments of British Columbia
and Dominion of Canada the
former conveyed to the Dominion
large tracts of the best lands of
To Dredge the River.
A petition has been circulated
at Okanagan Falls, Penticton,
and Summerland, and is now being taken up at Kelowna, to have
Okanagan River dredged out so
that it will permit the passage of
small steamers between Okanagan and Dog Lakes. The petition will be presented to the Dominion government at the next
session of parliament.
If this work is accomplished,
it will be of inestimable benefit
to the people of the Falls as hitherto they have been entirely cut
off from market except by along
wagon road. At one time a steamer of considerable size made regular trips to the Falls, but it was
later burned, after which no effort was made to keep the channel of the river open, and it, in
consequence, filled up in places.
Probably no locality except the
Falls would benefit by this work
to a greater extent than Penticton, as it would be at this point
that the produce from the Dog
Lake District would be transferred to the larger steamers.
In carrying out the proposition,
care will have to be exercised
that the water in Dog Lake be
not unduly raised, and, at the
same time, that Okanagan Falls
be not interfered with.

Kelowna Hospital.
The new cottage hospital being
built at Kelowna is now nearly
completed. The position it occupies is about half a mile to the
south of the town and about a
hundred yards from the lake-
shore. The lower storey, or basement, is built entirely of cement
blocks, the floor of the basement
being below the surface of the
ground. This part of the building will be used for kitchen and
storage purposes. The main portion is frame and has been painted a dark green, with a red roof.
There are three entrances by
stairways on the north, east and
west, and the large hall opens
into eight rooms of various sizes,
the wards and living rooms of
the hospital. Two large rooms
at the south open out onto a veranda with a good view over Okanagan Lake and surrounding
country. The building throughout has been well plastered and
finished.

CHA  TER VI,
Sir Henry Bas'.tervlKo and Dr. Mortimer were read; upon the appointed
iay, an ; we started as arranged for
Devonshire. Mr. Sherlock Holmes
drove with me to the gatUin and gave
ne his la.it navMaj injunctions' and
advice.
"I will not bi ts your mind by suggesting theories or suspicions, Witt-
son," said he; "I wish you simply to
report facts In t'.ie fullest possible
manner to mo, atid you can leava me
to do the theorizing."
"What soit of '.acts?" I asked.
"Anything which n ay seem to have
a bearing however indirect upon the
.-ase, and especially the relations between young B tskervllle and his
lelghbors or any fresh particulars
concerning the death of Sir Charles.
I have rtiml'j Home Inquiries myself in
the last few days but the results have,
I fear, bean negative. One thing only
appears to be ceitain, and that Is that
Mr. James Desmond, who is the next
heir. Is an elderly gentleman of u very
amiable disposition, so that this per-
feoutlon dreg not arise from him. I
really think that we u.ay eiluii.iate
lilm entirely from our calculations,
There remain the people who Will actually surround Sir Hflnry Baskerville
upon t ho moor."
"Would It not be well in the first
place t.a get rid of this Barrymore
couple?"
"By no means. You could not make
a greater mistake. If they are Innocent It would be a cruel injustice, and
If they are guilty we should be giving
up all chance of bringing it home tb
them. No, no, we will preserve them
upon our list of suspects. Then thorn
la a groom at the Hall, if I remember
right. There are two moorland farmers. There is our friend Dr. Mortimer,
whom I believe to be entirely honest,
and there is his wife, of whom we
know nothing. There is this naturalist
Stapleton, and there is his sister, who
Is said to be a young lady of attractions. There is Mr. Prankland, of Latter Hall, who Is also an unknown factor, and there are one or two other
neighbors. These are the folk who
must be your very special study."
"I will do my best."
"You  have arms, I suppose?"
"Yes, I thought it as well to take
them."
"Most certainly. Keep your revolver
near you night and day, and never relax your precautions."
Our friends had nlrea'dy secured a
first-class carriage, and were waiting
for us upon the platform.
"No, we have no news of any kind,"
said .Dr.   Mortimer.   In   nnswnr  to  m��
"You have always kept together, I
presume?"
"Except yesterday afternoon. I
usually give up one day to pure
amusement when 1 come to town, so
I spent It at the Museum of the College of Surgeons."
"And I went to look at the folk in
the park." said Baskerville. "But we
had no trouble of any kind."
"It was imprudent, all the same,"
said Holmes, shaking his head and
looking very grave. "I beg, Sir
Henry that you will not go about alone,
Some great misfortune will befall yo i
If you do. Did you get your other
boot?"
"No, sir, it Is gone for ever."
"Indeed. That Is very interesting.
Well, goodbye," he added, as tlia
train began to glide down the platform. "Bear in mind, Sir Henry, one
of the phrases in that queer old legend
which Dr. Mortimer has read to us,
and avoid the mcor in those hours of
darkness when the powers of evil are
exalted."
I looked back at the platform when
we had left it far behind, and saw the
tall austere figure of Holmes standing motionless and gazing after us.
The journey was a swift and pleasant one, and I spent it in making ths
more intimate acquaintance of my two
companions and in playing with Dr,
Mortimer's spaniel. In a very few
hours the brown earth had become
ruddy, the brick had changed to granite, and red cow3 grazed In wel'-
hedged fields where the lush grasses
and more luxuriant vegetation spohi
of a richer, if a damper, climate.
Young Brs'ervlIIe stared eagerly out
of the window, and cried aloud wlt'i
delight as he recognized the famllla,'
features of the Devon scenery.
"I've beon over a good part of th<i
world since I left it, Dr. Watson." sail
he; "but I have never seen a place tq
compare with it."
"I never saw a Devonshire man who
did not swear by his county," I re-
marked.
"It depends upon the breed of men
Titite as much as on the county." said
Dr. Mortimer. "A glance at our friend
here reveals the rounded head of the

Ic enthusiasm and power of attachment. Poor Sir Charles's head was of)
a very rare type, half Gaelic, half
Iveruian In Its characteristics. But'
you were very young when you las J
saw Baskerville Hall, were you not?"
"I was a boy in my 'teens at the time
of my father's death, and had never)
seen the Hall, for he lived in a little]
cottage on the South Coast. Thence
1 went straight to a friend In America. I tell you it is all as new to me as
it Is to Dr. Watson, and I'm as keen as
possible to see tile moor."
"Are you? Then your wish is easily
granted, for there Is your first sight
of the moor," said Dr. Mortimer,
pointing exit of the carriage window.
Over the green squares of the fields
and the low curve of a wood there
rose In the distance a grey, melancholy hill, with a strange jagged summit, dim and vague in the distance,
Hke some fantastic landscape In a
dream. Baskerville sat for a long time,
his eyes fixed upon It, and I read
lpon his eager face how much It

itrange spot where the men of his

rhelr mark so deep. There he set.

accent, In the corner of a prosaic railway-carriage, and yet as I looked at
his dark and expressive face I felt
more than ever how true a descendant he was of thit long line of high-
blooded, fiery, and masterful men.
There were pride, valour, and strength
In his thick brows, his sensitive nostrils, and his large hazel eyes. If on
that forbidding moor a difficult and
dangerous quest should lie before us,
this was at least a comrade for whom
one might venture to take a risk with
the certainty that he would bravely
share it.
The train pulled up at a small wayside station and we all descended. Outside, beyond the low, white fence, a
wagonette with a pair of cobs was
waiting. Our coming was evidently a
great event, for statlonmaster and
porters clustered round us to carry out
our luggage. It was a sweet, simple

observe that, by the gate there stood
two soldierly me in dark uniforms,
who leaned upon iieir short rifles and
glanced keenly at us as we passed.
The coachman, a hard-faced gnarled
little fellow, sainted Sir Henry Baskerville, and In a few minute-' we were
(lying swiftly down the broad, white
road. Rolling pasture lands curved upwards on either side of us, and old
Rahled houses pe tied out from amid
the thick green foliage, but behind tha
peaceful and sunlit country-side there
rose ever, dark ngainst the evening
sky, the long, gloomy curve of the
moor, broken by the jagged and sinister hills.
The wagonette swung round Into a
side road, and t�� curved upwards
through deep lanr; worn by centuries
of wheels, high r nks on either side,
heavy with dript. ig moss and fleshy
hart's-tongue ferns. Bronzing bracken
and mottled brai"ble gleamed In tho
light of the slnkl- % sun. Still steadily
rising, we passed over a narrow
granite bridge, a. d skirted a noisy
stream which gushed swiftly down,
foaming and roaring amid the grey
boulders. Both rord and stream wound
up through a valley dense with scrub
oak and fir. At every turning Baskerville gave an exclamation of delight,
looking eagerly about him and asking countless questions. To his eyes
all seemed beautiful, but to me a tinge
of melancholy lay upon the countryside, which bore so clearly the mark
of the waning year. Yellow leaves carpeted the lanes nd fluttered down
upon us as we r?ssed. The rattle of
our wheels died nway as we drove

H. MURK'S THE PENTICTON PRESS, PENTICTON, B. C, NOVEMBER 30, 1907,
COMMUNICATIONS
We do not hold ourselves iCBponp��b!e for the
opinions of correspondents.
To the Editor of The Fkmicton Press:
Your article in the last edition
of the Press referring to people
sending away east for their
goods is enough to set one thinking, and at the same time asking
himself what will the ultimate
result be if they continue to send
their money out of town at the
rate of $300 for twenty minutes.
Let us be a little more easy and
say $500 a week, which allows a
great, big margin. The next
question is, Why do they send
away? To this the only answer
can be that the prices of our
local merchants are altogether
beyond the actual value of the
goods.
I have been in Penticton for
about two years, and during that
period, I have never sent five
cents out of town for anything,
for the simple reason that it is
impossible to build up a town
when people do not patronize
their own merchants. Now, in
the face of the following, I feel
that I would be quite justified in
sending east for goods. Awhile
back I purchased a pair of shoes
for five dollars. They were most
unsatisfactory, and, after a little
wear, revealed paper in the soles.
This, I contend, is robbery, and
I am convinced that for the price
I should have received leather
and not paper. Take clothing
for instance, if the people could
purchase reliable goods at the
local stores at a reasonable price
they would certainly not send
away for them. It is, therefore,
my opinion that the merchants
are more to blame than the
people, and it is up to them to
reduce their prices and thus perform their part, as you have
stated in your article of last
week, in building up the town.

A National Live Slink Convention
A meeting of the Executive
Committee of the National Live
Stock Association was held on
Thursday, November 7th. at the
office of the Live Stock Commissioner, Ottawa, to consider the
calling of the next convention of
that body. The meeting was attended by the President, Hon.
John Dryden, Toronto, Ont, the
Vice-President, Mr. Robt. Ness,
Howick, Que., Messrs. G. A.
Gigault, Quebec, Que., Arthur
Johnson, Greenwood, Ont, and
J. ' G, Rutherford, Live Stock
Commissioner. Owing to illness
the secretary, Mr. Westervelt,
was unable to be present. The
Hon. Sydney Fisher attended the
meeting during the early part of
the day.
Arrangements were made for
the holding of the next conven
tion at Ottawa on February 5th.,
6th., and 7th. next. These dates
were selected so as to permit the
breeders from Western Canada
and also from the Maritime provinces to attend the meetings of
the cattle, sheep, and swine associations, most of which will be
held at the end of January and
during the first few days in February, as also the Horse Show
and meetings of the Horse Breeders' Associations which are arranged for the week following.
A programme for the convention was informally discussed but
not definitely arranged. A number of subjects will probably be
dealt with, but it is likely that
the principal discussion will be
on the advisability of amending
the regulations governing the admission to Canada of pure bred
stock. It is also proposed to take
up and discuss the best means
of retaining for our Canadian
breeders the Canadian market
for pure bred stock and it is probable that a number of specially
prepared papers on this subject
will be submitted. The future
of our export trade in pure bred
stock will also be discussed, while,
it is expected that considerable
light will be thrown on our export trade in cattle and sheep for
slaughter, as also our export
trade in meats and meat food
products.
The fact that a majority of the
live stock meetings are to be held
immediately prior to the convention will render it possible for
these bodies to definitely instruct
their delegates as to the stand
they are to take on the various
subjects likely to come up for
discussion. While this advantage will not be shared by a number of the horse breeders' associations, it is to be hoped that the
latter will hold special executive
mpntinsrs for tho purpose of instructing their delegates to the
convention.
